This band was recommended by a friend and it struck me as a bit unusual for him, a bit mainstream for a guy who likes his music eclectic. Female vocals, a light electronic lean put The Birthday Massacre in the region of the original Sneaker Pimps, the lighter side of Evanescence or The Sundays. So if they appealed to you, then I would recommend this. Easily accessible tunes, a good voice and well crafted songs make this an interesting aural adventure. They have a couple of albums under their belt, this is a short remix compilation that offers an insight into the bands style and direction. Skirting the edge of goth and emo bands they manage to pull the best out of the lighter side of these musical styles without sinking into too much introspection.
